When life knocks you down, get the hell up, and don’t let anyone or anything get in your way or impede your progress.
It doesn’t matter what failures you have experienced in the past. The present is what matters now. Today is a victory over yesterday and what you are doing right now is the most important happening in your life.
It’s easy to look at the state of the world and feel like there’s no sense in trying to fulfill your dreams. Quitting on yourself is not an option. We all have important work to do!
To get to where you need to be in life, you have to be able to walk through certain doors that were made only for you.
It’s your dream, life, mission, and responsibility to find a way through those doors. This is what life is all about.
If you are down, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Stay committed to getting back up on your feet. You are living in this world to experience everything good and bad, so live your life and be as productive and successful as you can be!
You are not in competition with anyone other than you!
Never give up on yourself or your dreams under any circumstances!

Powerful article, John!
And LOVE the words, “It’s your dream, life, mission, and responsibility to find a way through those doors. This is what life is all about.”
Although when I first saw the topic for today I almost felt overwhelmed as to what to write. Because I could write a book on the insanity in my life, and I did! “Subtle Sabotage.” Although it didn’t end happily ever after from there either. Several months after my book was published my husband nearly died on a ventilator as you nearly did, John.
And this year has taken my life in a whole new direction with my severely autistic son refusing to leave our home or go anywhere we ask. No more day respite for me. And as I have mentioned before, he breaks out of the house periodically and will walk in unannounced into other people’s homes.
I have been getting to know our local police all too well!
And just this morning he has been on the prowl in the house again. And he would have gotten out today, but we now have all the basement windows boarded up. But I had been chasing him around all morning with locking doors and moving food from the upstairs fridge into the basement fridge. He broke into the main fridge today. (And got food that gives him digestive problems and more)
No one lives the way we do. Even most other families in our situation are not as extreme as ours. I have a hard time picking up normal conversations with people, because they can’t relate. I mean even forgetting to hide a single piece of silverware can be disastrous. It is a tool for him to pry locks.
And on top of all this, my body has been in turmoil this past year as well with my rotary tear arms and shoulders. And also with my hip and leg being misaligned. But my chiropractor has been good. And I had at first thought that the physical therapy was good too until they decided to overwork me. Just a week or so ago after a session my upper back was in severe pain for several days afterward. I will admit I was crying. I couldn’t wait for my chiropractor appt. And that did help, but I then I learned that my right arm had become misaligned. So there is no way in hell that I’ll ever go back to physical therapy. I have learned the PT exercises and I am now doing them at home.
And John, I don’t mean to sound paranoid, but it almost felt like it was purposeful. It almost felt like they intentionally wanted to inflict pain on me so that I would ask for a cortisone shot. That would mean sending me off to an orthepedic who would want me to have surgery. And I had already adamantly refused both. Those physical therapy people are under the medical umbrella who seek your insurance money. (But I am paying out of pocket at the chiropractor. It’s not worth it to go that route there.)
Also, at another PT appointment the woman nearly poked me to death. I stopped her! Not what I would consider appropriate deep pressure input as the chiropractor does.
However, then there is another problem. My chiropractor suggested I go back to them. I was aghast! I learned further from my friend who has been to both these places that my chiropractor’s daughter got special treatment from them for some problem she had. I think my chiropractor is biased. I am sure they did well for her, and now they have a chiropractor sending people their way as their reward.
Anyway, I am trying to figure how to stay calm and positive if I am pressured again about going to PT. I have another chiropractor appt. later today. I have even considered changing chiropractors, but I really don’t want to.
And, yes, John. We do have to keep going through those doors despite the agony in our lives. I just try to keep telling myself that there is a higher purpose for all this anguish.
And I am meditating more now. I feel I need it. Oum! Oum! I am trying to get in touch with those energy frequencies.
And I did rest quite well last night!! 😊
Plus, I do feel it is good to try to keep a sense of humor about things. A family member tells me that I am always smiling and friendly. He doesn’t know how I do it. Although don’t get me wrong, I do have my days on the pity poty as well!
And, lastly, I have to say that venting is always good too. So thanks, John! 🙂
(That would include venting about all the crazy world events!)
Thanks for sharing, Lisa! It’s good to vent and get everything out. You have a right to feel overwhelmed. I often feel the same way. Life can be overwhelming at times. We need to keep pushing forward though and attempt to get through those doors. 😀
You bet, John! 😀
And let us also not forget the good things that come our way!
Lisa, Just a thought. Have you tried acupuncture? It did things for me that were absolutely amazing. Also, here is a link for info. that may interest you: The Radiac Appliance | Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E.
My old friend recommended the radiac as it cured her lyme disease. She is the Owner at Body Energy Institute/ Alternative Therapies in Virginia Beach, Va. I am going to try it for my lyme and other ailments.
I am still having weird problems too and still searching for relief and more than that the cause?
I have considered acupuncture, Sandy. There is actually one in walking distance from my home. We will see how it goes.
Glad you are finding things that are working for you.
And, John, I just got back from my chiropractor’s appointment. No mention of physical therapy.
As a matter of fact, I got praised as to how well I was doing. And how well I must be doing with my home excercises.
It’s hard to believe that just last week I was in tears.
And I also walked a little further tonight on my outdoor stroll.
I’m feeling happy right now! 😀
In a million years, I could never have imagined you were going through what you are. It is, literally, almost beyond the scope of comprehension. Knowing you’re going through something so drastically out of what we think of as the “norm,” yet were able to write a book (!) and even take the time to write your thoughtful comments is truly inspiring.
Please know you’re in my prayers (one of which will be to bring you as many moments of peace esch day as possible!)
Thank you, Ashley. I truly appreciate your kind words.
I live one day at a time.
And giving what you can to others is healing for our own souls. Even if it is only in the way of words. Although actually, words are quite powerful. As we witness here day to day on nofakenews by our commander and chief, Dr. John Reizer. ☺
But we still must not forget ourselves. Because if we forget ourselves than we won’t have the strength to lift up others.
And my writing my book was more for myself than anything else. A cleansing you might say to raise my spirits!
And I also feel that rising of consciousness everytime I write on nofakenews. Even when the truth is painful. And I would suspect that you, some others, and especially John must be familiar with that feeling.
Again, I appreciate your well wishes!
Sooooo true….thank you very much John…magnificent…Dirkje..
You are welcome, Doctor! 😀👍
I just started crying this morning when I read this post. It hit me so hard that I didn’t even realize how much of me I was seeing. I have been trying to stay on track but with so much going on and all the uncertainty it’s just mind blowing. Sometimes I am fine and at other times I feel lost. So much new information is coming my way that it makes me wonder how to continue on this path. I worry and then again I feel renewed? I have been listening to Jason Breshears videos and it sometimes has me in a tailspin. Maybe too much all at once. Anyway, Thank you for the comforting post.
You are welcome, Sandy! Hang in there and keep things in their proper perspective. We can still control our lives and have much to look forward to in the future.
I only write some of the things I do here to wake up people. I know that some of the content can be dark and heavy on the soul. Pace yourself and try to enjoy life. There is a lot of good out there, too! 🙂
Oh, John. I know you can tell by the number of replies you received how deeply your message was needed. Thank you!
Like Sandy, I nearly started to cry when I read it. I plan to print it and post it somewhere I will see it daily.
As a fellow truth-sharer who sees the warp-speed with which drastic changes are being implemented all around us, and wanting to do what I feel led to do in sharing them, it can often take its toll (as I know you know). I have spent my life desiring to spread positivity and joy wherever I could (literally being labeled “Miss Congeniality,” once upon a time!), so having come to this unforseen juncture that looks so dark, and sharing the not-so-positive truths about it in my writing, I often feel a little nauseous after posting something. Still, I know it’s the right thing to do, as God leads us to knowledge (or, if you prefer: We are led to acquire knowledge) not to just keep it to ourselves, but to share it, with the hope that it will help another in some way.
But your words have reminded me that, while I do try to live this way (positively, and for today) I may not have been doing the most important thing: giving people hope. And there is ALWAYS hope! God can do AMAZING things. The enemy wants us to feel defeated for he/they knows/know that one who feels defeated will just roll over and give up. We must not give up. We must share what we know, fight if we can, in whatever way we can, but not let a day go by where we don’t do something that makes us smile, and fill our minds with hopeful, beautiful thoughts, even if just for a few minutes at the beginning and end of the day.
Even when — or especially when!– all hell is breaking loose (and we all have our own personal hells), we need to take a minute to just breathe.
Thanks again for the reminder, and thanks for ALL you do!
Great stuff, Ashley! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and experiences here on NoFakeNews! 👍🙂
Beautiful, Ashley! 😊
